I am new to nursing.
What is the best brand for Stethoscopes?
and where do you get them?
Most nurses seem to agree that the Littmann is one of the better stethoscopes. They come in different models and qualities. I have a Classic II Littmann and it retails for around $100. There are some Littmans that are cheaper, and others of higher quality that probably cost four or five hundred.
Don't despair if you're on a tight budget though. The Sprague is a fairly good quality stethoscope that cost about $20 14 years ago when I was in nursing school, its probably a bit more now.
